In Canada, our sustainability strategy focuses on four pillars that are aligned with our Global Better Tomorrow 2025 roadmap: prevent food waste, prevent material waste, promote plant-based meals and source responsibly.

“We understand that these pillars are interrelated and need to be addressed to positively impact individuals, communities and the environment that’s why we are working with our teams, partners, clients and customers to create innovative solutions to make a positive impact on our environment”, says Normand St-Gelais, Director of Corporate Responsibility, Sodexo Canada.

Along with our 42 Sodexo Canada Sustainability Champions, we work to reduce our carbon footprint and to inspire others to do the same. “We are very proud of our Sustainability Champions who are spreading and promoting a sustainability culture everywhere they go, at work and at home”, says Andrea Cantin, Corporate Social Responsibility Coordinator, Sodexo Canada.

We know that as a food and facilities management company, food is our biggest source of waste, that’s why Sodexo has committed to reducing our food waste by 50 per cent globally by 2025. Thanks to partnering with LeanPath we are preventing and reducing food waste with our global program WasteWatch, an automated waste tracking and analytics platform to measure food waste performance with a goal of preventing it before it happens.

We also partner with the Humane Society International (HSI) Canada to train Sodexo chefs on plant-based cooking techniques and to transition at least 20 per cent of their current menu items to be plant-based with support from HSI/Canada's Forward Food program.

"Understanding the impacts of our services on the environment, communities we serve, wellness we provide and people we employ is on the forefront for Sodexo Canada's sustainable living initiatives”, says Davide Del Brocco, Sustainability Manager, Sodexo Canada.

Together we are making sure we are taking care of our people, the people we serve and our planet.
